Today is Eric and my fourth anniversary! You can read about our first three here:
We don't believe in gifts for anniversaries so instead we always go on a trip of some kind. The first year we went to Burlington VT, the second year we celebrated Amber's wedding in Canada, and last year we took a day trip to Rockport MA (then a few days later left for a big trip to Iceland, Germany and Austria.)
This year is obviously a bit different so we took this opportunity to leave Max for the first time over night and go to a hotel in Boston. Many people told us that we wouldn't know what to do with ourselves the first time we left Max but actually we just fell right back into old routines. We did fun touristy things during the day, ate a delicious dinner at night and then relaxed in our hotel room, mostly laughing our heads off without worrying about waking up a sleeping baby.
Here are some photos:
This coming winter Eric and I will have been together for 10 years, which is 1/3 of my life. I am so very lucky to have had this kind of support and laughter for such a long time.
Our fourth year of marriage can be characterized with two single words: THIS GUY.
Max brought us both some of the greatest joys and the greatest challenges of our marriage so far. When you consider that I have been either pregnant/angry, feeling like crap, sleep deprived or at times massively overwhelmed for the past year, I guess it's a wonder we made it to 4 years at all. Ha.
I'm looking forward to our fifth year of marriage, and our first full year as a family of 3 :) I plan to be a lot less miserable to be married to this year… at least let's hope!
